This is my "use up last year's berries" recipe for a refrigerator pie or individual ramekins of strawberry mousse. I use frozen, but you can use fresh if you prefer. It's sweet, delicious, creamy and light (in texture, not calories, ha ha!) We love it anytime of the year, but it makes a really pretty Valentine's or Christmas dessert when garnished with whipped cream, fresh berries and mint leaves.
